We invite you to join us for the 2021 URI Master Gardener Program’s Gardening with the Masters Tour. We are shaking things up this year, and inviting you to visit URI Master Gardener private gardens on June 12-13, 2021 AND September 25-26, 2021. Tickets cost $30/person and admit visitors to the gardens on both tour weekends. Information will be available that outlines COVID-19 precautions being taken at the gardens themselves, and some tips for garden visitors to keep everyone safe. Each of the 27 gardens on the tour is unique, evolving over the years and reflecting the changing interests and lifelong learning of its gardener. The inspiring gardens on the tour are created and maintained by certified URI Master Gardener volunteers. These certified URI Master Gardeners volunteer on educational projects and continually upgrade their horticultural knowledge by attending research- based classes each year. They have opened their gardens to you as a teaching tool, because our mission is to help local residents choose environmentally-sound gardening practices! After visiting these gardens, we hope you’ll be inspired to go home and try something new. So ask questions, bring your camera, take notes, but most importantly, enjoy the beauty created in these gardens!
